I disagree. There still a ton of movies that both sexes could watch. Such as
Brave - You need to be souless to hate a pixar film (except maybe Cars and Cars 2)
Step Up Revolution - Girls can pay attention to the romance, while guys can stare at the scantly clad lead girl.
God Bless America - Male or female you can still hate the Kardiashians.
The Sound of my Voice - Movies about cults rock! In addition, Ellen Page is very pretty.
Jersey Shore Shark Attack - I don't know how but this will make a ton of money and everyone will go see it.
Ditto to everything already said here. If a chick won't see a great movie because there's no "let's put on makeup!" montage, no one should give a fuck. Likewise, a dude who can't appreciate a non-explosion related flick is an idiot.
Also, you added The Hobbit to that list?! I'd wager that THE MAJORITY of Tolkien fans (at least younger ones) are girls.
I'm a girl and I'm definately excited for and want to see: The Avengers, TDKR, Prometheus, The Amazing Spiderman and The Hobbit. The others mentioned in that first post haven't piqued my interest ...YET and that has nothing to do with the fact that I'm a girl. It's just my personal taste. I don't think the variety coming out this year is too different from previous years either.
Ugh, great to know sexism is alive and well on Screened. I know my wife is wanting to see The Avengers and TDKR. She wasn't a fan of most of the other Marvel movies (except the first two X-Men movies and First Class) and really enjoyed TDK though probably not as much as I did. The summer blockbuster is nothing new and I think they appeal to a wider audience than most other movies during the year. The beginning of the year seems to have more rom-coms than usual but they're usually spread out evenly. I know I see my fair share of rom-coms but then I'll drag my wife to a horror movie though she generally hates them. It's all about compromise people.
Get out your thinkin' caps, 'cause this week we're counting down the five best sleuths ever!
